This episode is part of a series looking at the top 6 demands the labor movement is making of the new Obama administration. Passage of the Employee Free Choice Act (EFCA) is clearly the number one priority for organized labor. Some of the country’s highest ranking labor leaders attended a Feb. 17th rally for passage of EFCA in Chicago. This episode includes interviews with John Sweeney, President of the AFL-CIO, Chair of Change to Win Anna Burger and President of the Laborers International Union, Terence O’Sullivan. Also includes the testimony of a number of rank-and-file union members about the difficulties of organizing unions under current U.S. labor law.
